Merger Vote Update


We are excited to share that members voted to approve the merger with Telhio Credit Union.

Thank you to those members who voted and attended the special meeting. We are now completing the final steps to make the merger official on February 28, 2021.

There will be no immediate changes to your accounts. However, you will have access to additional products and services currently available to Telhio members, as well as shared branching, as of March 1, 2021.

Thank you again for your participation. We look forward to serving you for many years to come.

Benefits of the merger include:

  • Access to six additional branches in Columbus and three branches in Hamilton, Ohio, along with 5,600 more branches across the U.S. through shared branching.
  • Expanded product and service offerings including wealth management and investment planning, commercial banking, financial education and more.
  • All Columbus Metro branches will remain open with expanded business hours.
  • All Columbus Metro employees will remain with the combined credit union, and Columbus Metro board members will join the Telhio Credit Union board of directors.
  • Larger asset size provides financial stability in uncertain times and more resources to invest in information technology and security.


If the merger is approved, your accounts with Columbus Metro FCU will not change immediately. However, you will have immediate access to additional products and services currently available to Telhio members, as well as shared branching, effective March 1, 2021. Significant operational changes will take effect in early 2022.

We believe that the proposed merger with Telhio CU will allow us to provide our members with excellent service, state-of-the-art technology and financial stability for years to come. When you receive your ballot, we hope you will vote in favor of the merger.
